5.0 out of 5 stars Get it Straight from the Horses Mouth! July 7 2004
Format:Hardcover
I agree that this book is awsome. Nothing any better has been written on the subject for sure. I strongly recommend it... But! Don't buy the overpriced "used" copies they list. They're no different from the brand new ones that you can still buy for just $32.95. If you can't get the new ones here just call the publisher direct at 1-800-876-2893. Nice folks.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best! May 9 2002
By Don - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book more useful than any other on the subject of training horses. It is in plain old english, easy for anyone to understand. Along with telling you how to do something there are step by step photos so you know exactly what the guy is talking about. Anyone that is training horses to drive or work should have this book. It's good for general training too.

5.0 out of 5 stars All horse people must have it! May 23 2006
By Caitlin S. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you have horses, you need this book. Even if you never plan to harness a horse in your life, you need this book. A greenhorn born in the big city, I found myself making a living in the country with a naughty pony and several untried young horses. I bought books, went to county fairs, talked to old hands. But what got me going in training my own was a combination of common sense, patience via a love of the animals, and this book. Plain and simple.

Lynn's drawings and photos are exactly perfect. He explains everything with just enough detail but never too much. He has a realistic, kind approach that guarantees to turn out a trusting, trustworthy working equine. For instance, using his methods for introducing a harness, I had an untried colt quietly accepting a harness within 20 minutes, with never a raised voice or tense moment, and by myself. Just the way it should be done.

No kidding. This is the book to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! I learned a lot of useful stuff. Aug. 31 2009
By R. Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a beginner teamster. By beginner I mean I own to young Belgian draft horses who haven't been trained to pull, and have never driven a team of horses myself. This book gave me a new understanding of horses and how to train them. It helped build my confidence and has reselted in a vast improvement in my communications with my horses. My daughter has a young qurater horse foal and the training principle's taught in this book have really helped her also. Lynn Miller has a great understandong of horses and people and communicates his understanding in a plain and simple way. He give easy to follow instructions and many examples of his techniques. I highly recommend this book.
